Little Girl Portrait: Mouth and Hair

oil on canvas, 16x20
3rd Session


  1. Beautiful!!! That's definitely Gracie! With only the face and hair done, it looks as if you've cut her photo out of a picture and pasted it on a canvas. So cool to see this process!

  2. I have two pics of Grace sitting on my desk and I really like how you're capturing her hair, eyes, face...Greg

  3. Thanks Emily and Greg! When I am painting Gracie, I feel like I am painting a porcelain doll! She is so much fun! The dress will make it seem even more so.

  4. I love the painting, Rita! You have definitely captured her! I love how you painted the rose on her dress! Nicely done! Gayle

  5. I'm so glad you're liking it Gayle! I enjoy painting details like the rose; it adds visual interest...something to entertain the eye.
